Captain Trash isn't a real pirate ... he's an unreal pirate! Captain Trash is the alter ego of Port Phillip Baykeeper, Neil Blake (OAM). He educates kids of all ages on the 5 ARRRGHS: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse and Remove. His message is to leave only footprints on the sand ... not litter.
He's especially popular with Early Learning and Primary kids, and can be booked for litter audits, shoreline shell surveys, and festivals.
Using pirate humour, strumming the ukulele, and rapping funny lyrics, Captain Trash gets kids' attention.
The EcoCentre offers highly engaging, knowledgeable speakers and workshop facilitators with a range of specialist expertise for your event.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.
We proudly work in partnership with Arweet Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
